Canyon to supply rental bikes for Thomson Bike Tours

Published November 28, 2017

GUILFORD, Conn. (BRAIN) — Thomson Bike Tours, one of the largest international bike tour companies, will exclusively provide Canyon Bicycles in its rental fleet next year. The tour operator will use the Canyon Ultimate CF SL 8.0 Di2 models.


"We're always on the lookout for the best equipment, and to build synergies with our partners. We've chosen Canyon because they've been the go-to bike for the number one pro tour team for the last few seasons and came highly recommended to us — plus they are now operating in all our target markets," said Peter Thomson, the CEO of Thomson Bike Tours. "There's great potential for both parties. Regarding the bike, the Canyon Ultimate is a fantastic all-rounder with an emphasis on climbing — which is what we do!"

Thomson Bike Tours is the official tour partner of the Tour de France and one of only two operators worldwide to hold Official Tour de France Premium Tour Operator status. In addition to numerous trips to the Tour de France, Thomson specializes in challenging trips throughout Europe's famed cycling regions.

Blair Clark, president of Canyon USA, said, "Partnering with Thomson as its official bike is a win-win for everyone involved — and mainly the riders who will be able to experience any of Thomson's world-class cycling trips on a high-performance machine that was built for the types of adventures Thomson offers."
